    This was a funny concept, a zombie fighting reality show, and humorous ideas were incorporated all though it. However, there were many missed opportunities where there was a good idea that wasn't explored well. Also, the author's political bent was very apparent which wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but it wasn't the reason I pick up escapism fantasy, though I am interested to see if there will be a second season.

    Most zombie novels start with the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse where the worlds populations has already been decimated. This one though played for laughs and not horror has an increasing zombie threat, but the threat is mainly contained by professional zombie exterminators and police.This story also has another mindless and soulless horde to give affright to anybody - that is bureaucrats who regulate zombie extermination making it harder for practitioners to effectively practice their art. This part is pretty funny since it rings so true.The main story follows Netta Lyffe as she just tries to get by as an exterminator. As a result she becomes part of a reality show that follows her training apprentice zombie exterminators where one will win a prize at the end of the season. So there are a lot of funny ideas that thread this plot and I found the book quite fun and enjoyable on several levels. I've read comedic zombie treatments before like the Jane Eyre - zombie mashup, but they left me unsatisfied and not living up to their premise. This book being the exception had me chuckling throughout and enjoying both the humor and action.

    "Hell's Kitchen" with heart. Pretty much sums it up :). Neeta's got to whip her students into shape, so they can learn to slice and dice zombies. She's not the heartless terror that Chef What's-his-name is, but she can't afford to be soft when dealing with the undead.I laughed SO hard while reading Neeta Lyffe. But humor is not Karina's only strong point. The book has an actual plot and real characterization--two things that often lack in parody and humor writing. I became a fan of Karina's writing with the first Dragon Eye, P.I. short story, and then a bigger fan after reading Magic, Mensa, and Mayhem. She did not disappoint me with Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator.

    Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator by Karina Fabian . The title alone made me want to read this book. The main character is a woman named Neeta Lyffe and she’s a zombie hunter, that right there tells you what to expect and to someone like me who wants some comedy with their horror, it screams buy me. Another thing the title of this book does is give you a hint of what to expect from the story.In the 2040's zombies have become a problem and the world needs zombie exterminators. One of the best zombie exterminators around is Neeta Lyffe but things aren't going well for her. The government and special interest groups are making her follow the most environmentally friendly procedure to kill zombies. In addition to that Neeta is being sued because she set a zombie on fire that walked into a lawyer's back yard. In desperate need of money, Neeta decides to train zombie exterminators as part of a reality TV show that's more violent than any other show out there. As if dealing with the government and ungrateful people wasn't enough, she now has to deal with the paparazzi, a production staff that doesn't understand what she is trying to accomplish and a group of exterminator recruits who have no idea what they're getting into.Just when I thought that there were no more original zombie stories left, this one comes along. Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator is more of a satirical parody of real life then an average zombie novel. The funny thing is though while reading this book I found myself thinking that this is probably how a real zombie apocalypse will be.In Neeta’s world no one takes zombies seriously, they might see them as a threat but it doesn’t stop people from being people. You still have people walking into graveyards and playing tag with zombies, some people let their deceased loved ones walk back into their home despite the fact that they could get eaten and even though household cleaners put a stop to zombies, the government still limits their use. The only one who takes zombies seriously is Neeta, but getting others to see things her way isn’t easy.One of the funniest moments in this book was getting to read the internet bulletin boards for Neeta's reality show, complete with misspellings. I also enjoyed how the crew for Neeta's show acts, while Neeta is trying to educate people on the dangers of zombies, the crew is just worried about getting the highest ratings possible. This book has some serious moments that I enjoyed as well, like when Neeta points out that she has to act strong all the time because that's what keeps the demons at bay.I have to admit the story in this book is a little weak, at about half way through the book I was thinking to myself that I got the joke and was wanting a little more action and suspense. That being said the story makes a great point of showing how ridiculous society can be and it does it in a hysterical way. Neeta is a great character and I liked the range of emotion that she has. Keep in mind when you read this book that it's not your normal zombie book, its much smarter and you can probably teach a class on the deeper meanings in Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator. If I was to describe this book in one word it would be clever.

    Part horror, part comedy, part character study of a modern woman trying to balance career and love life, this book is a pure delight. As promised in the title, Neeta Lyffe makes her living by killing zombies. One would think this would make for a life of non-stop excitement and universal admiration, and one would be wrong. Set firmly in our world, although a few decades in the future, the story does not shy away from pitfalls of modern life. Our heroic zombie killer has to deal with lawsuits, mounting bills and less than satisfying personal life, making her instantly sympathetic and recognizable in spite of her tough-as-nails public persona and exceptional profession.(OK, I admit being able to fire up a chainsaw in a corporate meeting is a definite advantage, but aside from that…)The main plotline is centered around a reality show that has Neeta training a group of aspiring zombie exterminators, one of whom would receive a million dollars at the end of the season. This allows the story to veer into the commentary on our obsession with reality TV and celebrities as well as the effect that living in the public eye has on the participants. It’s all done in a lighthearted way, poking gentle fun at the modern culture and the way we tend to approach our entertainment. There is also some not-so-gentle satire of EPA regulations, social activism and the legal system that makes the story just a touch thought provoking without distracting from the fun and action. The twists and turns of the plot are fairly predictable, but the novel shines in the execution. What happens is less important than how, and it’s the cast of characters- all recognizable archetypes, but fun company nonetheless- that keeps us enjoying the ride.If you have the means, I highly recommend the audiobook version because the reader truly makes the story come to life, complete with distinct voices for all the characters and sound effects reminiscent of old fashioned radio plays. However, the story is entertaining enough in any format. Recommended to action and comedy fans alike, and you don’t have to like or even know standard zombie literature to enjoy this take on the genre.

    This is a fun romp through the zombie genre that is more akin to Shaun of the Dead than to the more "serious" zombie books I've read (World War Z, The Reapers Are The Angels).The zombie apocalypse is actually somewhat in balance at the point in which this book takes place. Neeta Lyffe is following in her mother's footsteps as a zombie exterminator. Due to some legal problems she is in need of extra income which is why she agreed to participate in a television reality show in which she trains wanna-be zombie exterminators. The winner will win a million dollars and the others, should they survive, will have been trained in a useful occupation. Naturally, each person has their own reasons for wanting this training and we see a bit below the surface into each person's motivations. Neeta herself loathes the necessity that made her agree to the series but is determined that each person will be properly trained. This puts her into direct opposition with the show's producer who is all about the visual thrills and exploiting every emotion to titillate viewers.Author Karina Fabian is very imaginative in her creation. For example, the zombies are repelled by common household cleaners. They have some dregs of habit left when they rise from the grave which makes them inclined to "visit" their loved ones or drawn to cultural icons they used to frequent. This is an amusing twist which Fabian exploits for full comic or adventure value as needed.I truly enjoyed this light, enjoyable book. I became invested enough in Neeta to worry that she might be dating the wrong person, to worry about who might die in the ending climax, to become annoyed with the troll that haunts the a fan forum for the show. It is a quick read, but one that I anticipate doing again. I received a review Kindle file but am going to put this on my wish list for an actual hands-on book to put on my bookshelves.

    Neeta Lyffe: Zombie Exterminator by Karina L. Fabian is one of “those” zombie novels. With the most ridiculous title for a novel ever and cover art that looks like poorly written fan fic porn, only a hard core zombie fan is going to pick it up and give it a chance, and that is a shame, because this is actually a well written and entertaining novel with a great message and a hilarious plot.Written 30 years or so after zombies start appearing, we the reader are introduced to Neeta Lyffe a professional exterminator, this job is more dangerous and complicated since zombies made the scene because exterminators also “re-kill” those pesky living dead who infest properties. Neeta is a second generation exterminator, a job she learned from her mother. After being called out to do an extermination job, Neeta Lyffe is ultimately sued by a homeowner and to help pay the settlement costs agrees to do a “Reality” TV show where she trains potential Zombie exterminators. A fun read and a good writer. I look forward to more from this author.3 of 5 stars.

    Ok, so I never thought I would read a zombie book, for starters, but when I was asked to record the audiobook for it I thought: what the heck. Sure. And that was the reluctant beginning to what then made me a huge fan of Karina Fabian. OMG! This was the first time I've ever had to re-record because it was so funny I couldn't stop laughing. Karina has a delightful, mildly demented sense of humor and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to anyone who likes to laugh. Whether zombies are your thing or not is apparently completely irrelevant. But if you are into zombies, boy, will you have a blast with this.In the audiobook we took it to the next level by adding music and sound effects. SO FUN! The audiobook is available on Audible.com.

    I don't even LIKE zombie fiction, but this book turned out to be a lot more fun than I expected. The "cutscenes" from the zombie documentary really added character to the storyline and allowed the author to gracefully build up Neeta's world without making the explanations feel like a tedious infodump. I initially cringed over some of the stereotypes on the reality show, but then I admitted to myself that in the real world, these are just the people who get picked to entertain the masses at the expense of their own lives. Loved how distinct the characters' personalities were. Bunnies for everyone!

    Though this is a book filled with humor, it also explores some deeper themes, which I appreciated. I'm not usually one to read horror anymore (did plenty of that in my youth, enough to last a lifetime), but though this has "zombie" in the title, I'd argue that it's a book more about human nature than it is about zombies. I'll be in line to read the next book, if there is one. Really enjoyed this one!

    Really enjoyed this take on zombies! There was only one problem I had with this book and it was that dang 500 grand lawsuit that Neeta was paying off. What the crap man? I just knew some form of justice would be had but nope and that annoyed me to no end once I finished -_-
